ECSA was founded in 2005, after brainstorming with the Heads of Security of major Corporations, of the EU and International Institutions and with Justice & Home Affairs Experts from EurojustEuropol and the EU Institutions.

ECSA's Objectives are:

  • To provide its members with a trusted forum for:
    • Sharing common Issues & Experiences
    • Information & Education
    • Networking with co-members and third parties
  • To liaise and to promote synergy with relevant Academic, Research, Scientific, Public & Private Organizations and Associations
  • To stimulate Public-Private Cooperation 
  • To set up and maintain a communication channel for information exchange and emergency warnings 

In order to promote free and frank discussion and to control the distribution of information ECSA operates under specific Meeting & Information Handling Rules.

ECSA Members are Managers in charge of Security at major Corporations, EU and International Organisations & Institutions. Membership is by invitation only and full adhesion to the ECSA Spirit is a mandatory requirement.

The Board of ECSA is composed of Representatives of the Academic, the Public and the Corporate Sector.
